Canning is impressed with St Molaise Gaels set up after visit
HE is hoping to become the first ever player to win successive Hurler of the Year accolades and on Monday last he was special guest for a meet and greet with players and coaches in Monsignor Hynes Park, the home of St Molaise Gaels.
Galway’s lethal forward Joe Canning took charge of a training session with the players and spoke to the large crowd afterwards about his successes on the pitch.
The occasion was a special event for the North Sligo club which has seen a lot of work gone into its hurling programmes of late.
The club said it was a great evening overall and praised the Portumna man for taking time out of his busy schedule to train with and give advice to their young hurlers.
“Proud day for Molaise Gaels to have a player of his stature grace our field .
“Thank you very much to everyone who contributed to a very enjoyable evening, from the parking attendants, the lads who had the pitch and grounds looking fabulous, the parents who provided the food,Sean Herron and Charlie Hegarty for their nice words.
“The huge crowd that turned out to welcome Joe to our Club was brilliant.
“Finally to our hurling coaches, fair play lads ye organised a great event.” A special evening that will live long in the North Sligo club.
